    Mounting a Bigsby B5 on my tele and am cutting this bridge down so the strings run from the roller bar to the saddles unimpeded.

        Comments about Fender American Vintage 3-Saddle Telecaster Bridge Plate:

        Fits perfectly. Same classic look. Someone commented about finish of this bridge plate but remember, this is exactly how it was back in old days. Back then this bridge plate was covered under "ashtray". There are many "better finish" (after market) bridge plates available. But I prefer this classic style over those newer ones.

            Comments about Fender American Vintage 3-Saddle Telecaster Bridge Plate:

            I buy this bridge plate for all the vintage teles that I make. I get the plate, the compensated saddles, and the cover, separately. Cheapest way to go. I only use this bridge or the Plate bridge on my Teles. Some folks have complained about the chrome plating and the slightly sharp edges. The edges are easily fixed. Although, I never had to dull them and none of my customers complain. these are exactly like the originals. Shinny chrome at the open end, and frosty chrome behind the saddles. If you need to have shinny chrome all over, then get a Joe Barden bridge. I don't think they accept the vintage cover though.
            Compensated brass barrel saddles look and sound great. These are the ones I use. JW

                Good old style thin and twangy Telecaster bridge.
                The partial matt finish gives it visual appeal. Be aware that you cannot top load this bridge. It's string thru only.

                This place came with only the top 1/3 chromed and the metal wasn't even filed even or smooth on the edges.
